SC East Bengal meets FC Goa in the Indian Super League(ISL) on Wednesday.
Team SC East Bengal got off to a bad start with their Indian Super League(ISL) debut. They couldn't win the league after seven games, but they finished the series in their last match against Odisha FC. Robbie Fowler's men scored a convincing 3-1 victory over the final team. However, the defense was a concern for them as they were unable to keep their sheets clean yet.
While SC East Bengal is currently ranked 10th in the league table, FC Goa is in a comfortable position. Injustice is currently third in the table. With 14 points from 9 matches, there is still much room for improvement.
Like SC East Bengal, FC Goa was defensively poor. They have kept one clean sheet so far. If Feranndo wanted to repeat what Lopera did at the club, the team would have to change gears.
